AMD’s flagship workstation processor, the Threadripper PRO 5995WX, is described by AMD as “non-overclockable,” but with the right motherboard based on the WRX80 chipset, you can overclock the CPU. So did the overclocker from Taiwan under the nickname TSAIK. He used an MSI WS WRX80 motherboard in his test bench and was able to push the Threadripper PRO 5995WX to 5.15GHz. It would seem – a trifle, if not for one “but”: this is the frequency of all 64 cores!
The base frequency of the Threadripper PRO 5995WX is 2.7 GHz, the maximum (when loading a single core is 4.5 GHz). That is, the increase relative to the maximum passport frequency is small – only 14%. But in fact, overclocking is very significant, and this, of course, affected the results.
Running at 5.15 GHz, the Threadripper PRO 5995WX didn’t just break the 100,000 mark in Cinebench R23, it went well. As a result, in the multi-threaded test – 116,142 points, and this is a world record reflected in the HWBot database.
The previous maximum result – 105,170 points – was recorded when overclocking the Ryzen Threadripper 3990X to a frequency of 5.25 GHz. Then, as in the case of TSAIK, a liquid nitrogen-based cooling system was used.
Samsung is preparing an “ultimate” SSD. The company teases with a promotional video with a new drive
Samsung has started teasing Twitter users with an advertisement for a new SSD. The company does not specify the details, calling the new Ultimate SSD.
Third-party sources expect this to be a new SSD (or a whole series) with a PCIe 5.0 interface. These may well be models of the Samsung 990 SSD line, which were previously lit up in the databases of regulators.
Samsung previously released the PM1743 PCIe 5.0 SSD for the data center, and it offers data transfer speeds of up to 14GB/s, so you can expect similar numbers from the 990 Pro.
Some motherboards will turn the Core i9-13900K into a power consumption monster. The power limit will increase to 350W
Intel can make the Core i9-13900K even more attractive with a new auto-overclocking mode.
The source reports that some motherboards based on 700-series chipsets will allow you to activate an increased power limit. In this case, we are talking about a value of 350 watts. For comparison, Alder Lake has a maximum of 241 watts.
The values of PL1 and PL2 for the new CPUs will hardly change and will amount to 125 and 253 W, respectively. But there will also be an opportunity to remove the limit, thanks to which the Core i9-13900K will be able to consume up to 350 watts. In this case, of course, the motherboard will need a powerful power supply subsystem, and the processor will need a productive CO.
CPU performance in this mode can increase by 15%, although this will depend on the tasks. Whether the Core i9-13900KS, which was previously assigned a frequency of up to 6 GHz, will be released under such conditions is now unclear.
This is Ryzen 7 7700X. Pre-sale copy first lit up in the photo
The first photo of the Ryzen 7 7700X processor has appeared on the Web, which should be presented on August 29, and it is expected to go on sale on September 27.
Apparently, the picture shows a pre-sale version. Perhaps this is one of the copies for media reviews.
The Ryzen 7 7700X is an octa-core SMT capable CPU up to 5.4GHz with a TDP of 105W. According to leaks, such a processor will cost about $ 300, that is, it will not rise in price relative to its predecessor at the start of sales.
Recall, in addition to this model, a 16-core Ryzen 9 7950X, a 12-core Ryzen 9 7900X and a six-core Ryzen 5 7600X are also expected. Later the line may well expand.
